Toffee Nut Bars. Easy to make and of course DELICIOUS! This is a real age - old family favorite with delicious coconut and black walnuts, what a great combo!

Libby has kindly shared another of her family recipes for us all to enjoy. When Libby was growing up, her mom would make Toffee Nut Bars as a special treat for the whole family.

Here's what Libby says about these:

"Toffee Nut Bars - That is what she called them. We lived in a time when desserts were a real treat. Birthdays, Sunday dinner and such. We lived on a farm and money was tight. Coconut was not often had. So when we got these we really enjoyed them. I had forgotten about them until after she passed away. She had not made them in years.

Once I remembered them I went on a search for her recipe. Looking through all her boxes and boxes of cut out recipes from magazines and papers. No luck, but then I decided to try it and see if I could recreate my mom's recipe, and sure enough, it was perfect. For the ones I made I used English walnuts.

I feel so lucky that I made this recipe and I will be passing it on to my family so it is never lost again!"
